Health & Safety in Tennis Come First!

There is one common goal all athletes share and that’s to win. Regardless of what sport an athlete is passionate about, the long hours of practice, the blood, the sweat, and the tears, are all worth the glory that comes from a buzzer ending victory! Every tennis pro knows that feeling all too well – having one of your best sets and finishing out a match as victorious. It is a feeling that sometimes cannot be put into words…

However, there comes a point when victory and pain do not match up. The type of pain athletes ignore until it is too late; when injury rears its ugly head, even the most competitive athletes cringe at the thought of a doctor’s visit. Especially a visit that leads to sitting on the sidelines, watching coaches and teammates go about their daily routine.

Health and safety in tennis is just as important as winning and keeping your competitive edge alive! To stay on the court, a tennis player needs to remain in tip-top shape and stay as healthy as possible!
